Event description

Description

Students for the Prevention of Violence at UCSF is proud to host this year's conference, which will focus on will focus on the interconnectedness and impact of multiple forms of violence on patients, how different kinds of trauma affect our patients and their communities. We will organize as an act of collective resistance to the belief that violence is inevitable. We will work toward building a coalition of interprofessional healthcare providers to transform patient care and healthcare systems to promote healing and resiliency.

Topics to be addressed include intimate partner violence, structural violence, race-based violence, sexual violence, community violence, violence in LGBTQI communities, violence in homeless communities, violence against disabled persons, child abuse, and trauma-informed care.

This conference is critical in training future practitioners to address abuse and trauma with patients, support survivors, and advocate for violence prevention. Attendees will be given the opportunity to interact with specialists from a range of disciplines through small breakout sessions, provider trainings, and panel discussions featuring community professionals and survivors.
